NHS Energy Efficiency Programme
11 October 2007, News release from The Enersol Corporation
Exciting and important programme to be launched at E2
Energy efficiency company Enersol have teamed up with healthcare management specialists Meridian Productivity to deliver an energy efficiency solutions programme developed specifically for the NHS.
The solution encompasses a diverse range of technologies and services that can be brought to bear to deliver what the new Enersol Meridian Strategic Partnership describes as 'a step change in energy efficiency' for the NHS.
Each year, every Trust and Authority spends an ever-increasing part of its budget on energy, with costs for the total NHS energy bill running into some £400M - and rising. This equates to a staggering 45 million gigajoules - enough to power a city the size of Cardiff. Even a small percentage saving would reduce costs and energy consumption, releasing desperately needed funds for staff and primary care. The Enersol Meridian programme however has been developed to deliver savings in excess of fifteen per-cent, and in some cases, considerably more. The savings in terms of both energy and emissions would be of national significance.
Enersol Director Cliff Winckless said "We've combined existing and new technologies with a fresh 'total approach' philosophy that is already delivering substantial savings for customers in the commercial sector. The NHS programme will cut costs, cut energy consumption and reduce emissions across the board. It's also self-financing. There is no downside."
Meridian Productivity Ops Director Jody O'Neill agreed. "We deliver improvements in operating performance for the healthcare sector - and with Enersol we can now turn our attention to the growing burden of energy costs. We know the issues, we know the Authorities and Trusts, we know the culture and we can take this programme to the NHS. It's going to make a real difference, and the NHS could become a model of energy efficiency for the healthcare sector throughout Europe and beyond. This is an exciting and important programme."
Now in its 11th Year, Meridian was has been extensively involved in the Healthcare industry across the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Holland, Belgium and Spain. Meridian assists clients across the Healthcare environment (private and public) in achieving improved operating efficiencies and performance, through the development of bespoke management and behavioural processes . These processes are all designed and implemented to ensure that client organisations can be assured of returning the best performance on the resources applied.
